TopBuild Discusses Growth Opportunities at Investor Day

Outlines Key Areas of Focus  
Provides Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA Guidance for 2017 and 
Long-Term Targets Related to Key Financial Metrics

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Oct. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TopBuild Corp. (NYSE:BLD), the leading purchaser, installer and distributor of insulation products to the U.S. construction industry, hosted its inaugural investor day in New York City today to discuss growth opportunities and key areas of focus for its business segments. 

Jerry Volas, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We are very excited about the multiple growth opportunities for our Company.  We are leveraging our scale and deep customer and supplier relationships to drive results, our culture is promoting and rewarding an entrepreneurial spirit, we are attracting top talent at all levels, and we are driving operational excellence throughout our organization.

“As noted in today’s presentations, over the past two years we have enhanced our business model, diversified our business mix and expanded our operating margins.  With annual residential new housing starts still far below the fifty-year average of 1.5 million, we believe the current housing recovery has plenty of room to grow.  In addition, we envision our commercial business revenue continuing to expand at a minimum of 12% per year.”

The Company also provided revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance for 2017 as well as long-term targets for certain key financial metrics.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
